Admissions Policy for Students with Disabilities

WMCC shall not discriminate against applicants with disabilities who are otherwise qualified. This policy extends to people with identified, specific learning disabilities under the provision of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. An “otherwise qualified” person is one who can meet all program requirements despite the person’s disability.

Students with diagnosed documented disabilities are encouraged to self-disclose their disabilities to be eligible for reasonable accommodations.

Students should provide documentation and academic testing of their disability to the Accessibility Services Coordinator, including the most recent psychological profile (within three years). Students who provide appropriate documentation work closely with faculty, as well as staff in the Student Success Center (SSC), who provide instruction, consultation, self-advocacy skills, and learning and study strategies. The College also provides computer-assisted instruction, tutorial and mentor services, academic-enrichment activities, and academic counseling.

For more information, students should contact the Accessibility Services Coordinator at (603) 342-3059.
